Sergei Samsonov, who flamed out as a high-profile free-agent signing in Montreal, today was demoted by the Chicago Blackhawks to their AHL affiliate, the Rockford IceHogs.
Not the least bit surprised to be honest… I wonder what happened. He had a bright and promising future and seemingly threw it away.
The Habs: A bright future indeed~
SO LONG SAMSONOV YUH BUMM,MAYBE YOU CAN WRITE A BOOK,HOW TO GET RICH IN THE NHL WITHOUT EVEN TRYING.
Enjoy playing in Mother Russia with your pal Yashin – hopefully this will be the last time we Habs fans are so badly let down by a so-called superstar.
Seven million dollars over two years – for absolutely nothing. And to think that some fans have to save all year to get two tickets to a game so their child can see an NHL contest up close. Despicable.
The Original 24 Cups
ya ummm… what she said.
Perhaps some of the posters who insisted it was Carbonneau’s fault Nancy Samsonov could not play with the Habs would now be honest enough to acknowledge their errors.
I will not, however, hold my breath….
“The crowd doesn’t give a crap as long as you bring the money in.”
i watched him with chicago a bit this year…and he was just as bad as before… i hope the pucks we recieved for him are doing well in practice
This guy used to be a great player but lost all desire. Imagine that Gainey unloaded him immediately after 1 year and people still question Gainey as a GM.
Good riddance Samsonov! And take your arrogant, self-righteous personality with you.
It’s all Gaineys fault! Or Carbos! Or the skate sharpener! Or the pizza guy! or…… just never mind!
Let the kids play… let the non-performers watch or walk.
